During the open call event, vendors will meet with key technology leaders to pitch innovative solutions/technology for retail, logistics, big data, security and social media. It is anticipated that more than 100 of Walmart technologists, leaders and senior leaders will meet with companies.
“As part of Walmart Technology, Lab 415-C actively seeks to engage emerging technology in order to better understand how to serve our customers,” said Tom Douglass, director of Walmart Lab 415-C. “Our goal in the event is not only to offer these companies a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, but to keep Walmart on the cutting edge of technology.”
Not only is the open call aimed at finding technology, but it is also designed to companies to better understand working with Walmart Technology. To accomplish this, Lab 415-C will be hosting an information session prior to the pitch event.
The Walmart Lab 415-C “Technology Innovation Open Call” event is part of the 2016 Northwest Arkansas Technology Summit hosted by the Northwest Arkansas Technology Council as part of the Bentonville/Bella Vista Chamber of Commerce.
